Are your prices the right ones?

Different from what they taught you at school - What if I tell you that most of the questions you have about costs and retail prices can be answered before you've even touched a sewing machine? Wouldn't it be great to have a sense of what you're spending and what you could potentially make before you press that big red button? 

* Is my RRP (recommended retail price) enough to pay the bills? 
* Have I covered all the costs in my product, nothing hidden that might surprise me? 
* Should I include my time in the cost price? 
* If I include a flyer in the box, should this be part of my cost price?

Follow the example in the 'How to cost & price your product' template and just get started. I will take you step by step through what to include, what to exclude and give you guidance on what is a 'good' price.

koai lab - BUDGETING

You don't understand budgeting?

Did they tell you that you are not good with numbers? That your brain is a creative one and you'll never be a strong business person? F*ck them! 

It's scientifically not proven that a normal healthy creative brain, can't understand numbers or complex financial structures. It is proven that creatives simply aren't interested. The moment you start getting interested and it becomes fun, you can and will accelerate. 

So let me get you interested - start today with your budget, and create clarity. It will give you confidence and peace of mind. The moment you see the green bars appear throughout the year - you'll be the proudest creative geek out there.
